Like previous volumes in the "Educational Innovation in Economics and Business" series, this one is genuinely international in terms of its coverage. With contributions from ten different countries and four continents, it reflects the worldwide interest in, and commitment to, innovation in business education with a view to enhancing the learning experience of both undergraduates and postgraduates. It should prove of value to anyone engaged directly in business education, defined broadly to embrace management, finance, economics, informational studies and ethics, or who has responsibility for fostering the professional development of business educators.
